last month according to our media partner, the san jose media news. someone recognized him as sex offender and notified a santa clara deputy on site. but he wasn't arrested because he had a letter with written permission from a church official to be there. he is a registered sex offender who had reached a plea deal with the d.a. for molesting a young relative more than a decade ago. but he was at the school festival working the sound system with little to no supervision with hundreds of kippedder garden through eighth grade students in attendance according to the mercury news. the pastor at st. francis and the diocese of san jose told the newspaper they had no information on the source of the letter granting permission to be on school property. so of course that begs the question is the

minutes of day light. we have an area of low pressure. a little piece of energy from the low continues to rotate through the bay area. live doppler 7 hd, here it is. you notice the showers skirting the coastline of san francisco but they are headed towards monterey. we are looking at a few showers around salinas and gilroy this morning. otherwise partly cloudy skies. terry mentioned that wind.

mainly to the south of us and then we will get into more sunshine today. here's a look at what you can expect throughout the day. notice those showers ten to skirt south and into the santa cruz area. so we will end unwith a cool, partly cloudy afternoon with temperatures well below average. look at that, 64 in los angeles. starting out in the teens and 20s in the sierra nevada with some more snow there. about 30 in tahoe, 39 yosemite, upper 50s big sur and 58 calm springs. back home around the bay, look at these highs. just 59 degrees in oakland. fremont, san jose upper 50s. from palo alto to
